fallout was purposely set in an alternative universe I can't remember where the split is but it was along the lines that in the fallout universe they used nuclear technology for batteries and the like which is why they have advanced technology in the 1960's era.

The point of divergence is sometime shortly after WW2 but I recall one of the developers explicitly stating that the fallout universe has physical laws that are a bit different from our own. It's why radiation has such different effects and persists in the environment like that and the weird technology. Also why radiation doesn't just kill you but also makes stuff bigger and meaner, mirelurks are what radiation did to the crabs for example. Though IRCC it was also mentioned that some mutations of animals are the result of a mutated strain of airborne FEV getting loose in the atmosphere at some point.

Note that in the real world if a nuclear war happened places like the Capital Wasteland would covered in green after 200 years. Just look at Chernobyl, it's basically a wild life refuge and hiroshima, nagasaki and various nuclear test sites aren't really any different in their ability to sustain life after ahalf a century. Higher cancer rates in those areas but that's about it.

Except it'd be fucking stupid to use Fallout as your guide to surviving since Fallout radiation behaves nothing like how radiation actually works in real life.

Sharpened stick.
It's not just a stick. It's a sharpened stick.

And I like the cosplay, The bright colours and all the frills and petticoats may give away your location but atleast you look fabulous whilst doing it.

Say the guy who has nothing to contribute other than.
I'll save the rest of you some effort and just base line it to, He's calling /fo/ users fags. Not even with a hint of humour, Just straight up called us fags.

You don't really have much sway my shitty man, What with you being about as on topic as a nazi talking about the rights of life.

I thought the increased use of glass, ceramic, and metal because plastics were hard to get thanks to oil be scarce as hell was realistic. Also, the increased size and relative slowness of advanced computers.

I also liked that guns sucked as hundreds of years of firing and improper maintenance probably made even the best ones essentially smooth-bore. Barrels do in-fact wear out.

Chernobyl was a catastrophic failure of a nuclear reactor, it's not a good comparative for contamination like that on scale of nuclear conflict.

Chernobyl is also still extremely dangerous, radiation still persists in lethal pockets all over the Exclusion Zone. There also are reports from military patrols and clean-up crews of glowing red trees, disfigured animals, mutated animals, odd plant life, ect... On the scale of released radiation, as a long running scenario the contamination is environmentally damaging, but not significant outside that.

Both Nagasaki and Hiroshima sustained minimal radiation release, each device had less than a 15% burn of it's core...meaning the release of radiation was minimal overall. Together, they're a paltry 38 kilotons.

The Nevada Test Site is peppered with contaminated locations, the majority of test detonations having occurred underground, yet it is one of the most heavily contaminated locations in the US. NTS is often used to train military and governmental agency response personnel in a real radiological environment. The majority of tests revolved around Tests Effects, Weapons Development, and various other experiments. In total, around 200MT worth of weapons has been detonated in Nevada, the overall equivalent of total yield released world wide is 510MT over a 65 year period.

The location of all the US' larger detonations, Bikini Atoll has vegetation that is contaminated on a lethal level, as is the sand. Fortunately the wrecks around the atoll, apart of "Operation Crossroads" have minimal radioactive contamination. That is mostly due to the fact that water shares most of the base elements with that of the contaminating radioisotopes, the base elements dilute the lethality of the radioisotopes making the threat minimal, if at all.

The overall peak of nuclear weapons stockpiling in the 1960's hit 5,300MT in equivalent yield, or just over 10x great than that of which has been released since 1945.

I think it's fair to say we have no idea how the environment would react or how the landscape would look after a global nuclear conflict.
